The Trump victory brought many of us a very new and strange experience: political victory. After so many decades of political defeat, traditionalists and nationalists had become used to being completely powerless in the face of the Jewish, globalist behemoth. Lacking outer strength, we were forced to turn inwards. While the lack of political power was certainly lamentable, there were benefits to this inward focus, especially for Christians. When we were without any help from men we had no choice but to turn to God. The constant assault of atheism, multiculturalism, feminism and militant homosexuality would bring any right-thinking man to total despair if he could not stay focused on the once and for all victory of Christ over the Devil and all of his servants. The servants of Satan might have been able to claim temporary victories for the advancement of communistic egalitarianism or the latest degenerate lifestyle, but we knew that they were living on borrowed time. The end of days will eventually come and the victory of Christ that we know by faith will be revealed to all men.
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)
However, now that the Trump presidency has sparked the beginning of white identity politics, our confident resignation has been replaced by something new. This something new certainly has elements of joy and relief, but, at least in my case, it also has elements of anxiety and excessive entanglement with the world. Before the Trump phenomenon my daily reading of the news brought dismay, but a calm, resigned dismay. Now as I follow the news I frequently find myself in great suspense wondering whether or not Trump will succeed. Each day I worry about what tomorrow will bring, in clear contradiction to the teaching of our Lord:
“Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” (Matthew 6:34)
Here Jesus is not warning us against making prudent plans for the future, but against becoming so focused on the events of the world that we lose sight of God.
Following the news over the last few weeks has shown us how little power we truly have over what is happening in our country. It appears that there is a struggle going on between Trump and certain elements within our intelligence agencies. The struggle is so obscure that we cannot predict the outcome, let alone influence it. Any day now agents in the CIA might release damaging information about Trump—real or fabricated—that could lead to the end of his administration. In situations like this where we cannot control the outcome it does not benefit us at all to become consumed with anxiety. We certainly have a duty to engage in political activity and to fight for a brighter future for our people, but we cannot let this fight cause us to lose the inner peace that God has offered to us.
“Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the Lord!…Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the Lord shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.” (Isaiah 31:1,3)
All earthly strength eventually fails. As much as we should be grateful to Trump for routing our enemies, we must not forget that ultimately his strength is earthly. Stay vigilant, and stay active in pushing the nationalist agenda in whatever way you can, but only look for peace in the one power that can never fail.
